Lio #2943

ID #: 2943 Age: 2 yrs Gender: male Status: in-progress

Hi everyone…my name is Lio and I’m a two-year-old boy.  I first met the kind folks at Golden Rescue when I came off the plane from Cairo.  I was afraid, anxious, and underweight.  Slowly but surely, I realized that my amazing foster family was safe and I became less afraid and even started to put weight on.  I still have a lot to learn though and I still need to become more socialized, especially with other dogs.  My previous life has made me wary of other dogs so for now I need to be the only dog in the home.  Perhaps in time with love, training, and patience, I might start to interact better with dogs but for now I need space.  Humans, on the other hand, I love.  I love them all ~ adults, teens, men, women, children…absolutely everyone!  In fact, I’m described as very sweet and loving ~ aw shucks!  Loud noises don’t bother me.  You can touch me anywhere.  I’m reasonably gentle with my treats and I know I have to be left alone at times as you go about your day.  For now, I do need a fenced backyard as I have been known to bolt to see what’s on the other side of the fence, so to speak.  I love my walks, running, playing with my kong, and car rides.  I’m getting more confident every day.  I’m putting on weight and I’m learning so much about human ways.  Thanks to all of you for finding me and giving me a second chance.  I am SO grateful.

Lio is currently being fostered in the Stratford, ON area. If you would like more information about Lio please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
